(March 15, 2017)- Established in 1966, Chassis Engineering grew up with the street rod movement that gained steam in the late 1960s.

Under the motto “Safety in Engineering”, the company makes suspension components, engine mounts and swap kits, frame upgrades, and other components to turn early iron into the street rods we know and love.

Summit Racing carries a whole bunch of Chassis Engineering components including these:

Boxing plates are available for these vehicles:
